  • Basic layout of a human puppet
  • Upper body has soft connections
  • Leather chord held with pins. Fixed alignment, but flexible movement.
  • Legs have hard (carved) joints
  • Groove and notch
  • Held with pins
  • Foot has the arc of a circle with the radius from the knee. Allows smooth walking, rolling of the foot. I have never tried the shoes.
  • Basic controller
  • Head holds most of the weight
  • Anchoring the head so it doesn’t swing to much. Nodding. Several emotions
  • Anchors the whole body. Lifts it a bit, taking some of the weight from the head. Prevents wobbling while walking.
  • Folding at the waist. Getting up and down. dancing
  • On a toggle. When one is raised the other has slack to swing back.
  • Out in front, easy to reach
  • God. Jaunty, good legs
  • Devil, probably because of his head size he wiggles a lot more. Identical body to god
  • Hansel, clumsy, twisting
  • Lady: short thighs
  • Butcher: short legs, heavy body, tiny steps.
  • Giant mary, precise steps owing to weight and leg proportion and foot arc
  • Lady again for comparison, imprecise arc= drunk
  • Crow locamotion
  • lady
  • devil
  • god
  • hansel
  • butcher
  • mary
  • crow
  • Lady collapse
  • God collapse
  • Butt dance
  • The smaller and lighter he puppet becomes the greater the need for stillness and slowness
